New year, changes that I can believe in.


I still have approximately 1/2 year more before I graduate with a degree in comp sci. Quite a few changes to my life at the turn of the year, mainly:
  • Quit my part time job selling apples (the job's fine, but I lacked the time to code!) Gonna write a fun game from now. ;D
  • Cleaned up quite a bit of my room, less clutter (but still a wee bit too cluttered, gonna work on it. And keeping my desk neat at the end of every day.
  • Changed the location of my mouse to left handed, my right wrist still hurts since I fell and landed on it around a year ago.
  • etc.
I'm gonna spend more time on coding and have convinced myself to purchase a new monitor (despite the tight budget I'm working with). My current one (17") isn't really big enough, especially when I'm using virtual machine + looking at the documentations, google, etc. And hey, having 2 monitors is the 1st item on The Programmer's Bill of Rights.

This year, my personal motto would be "Making things happen". Or maybe it should be every year? Cheers.

***
GPGT. Above's the picture of my room. The 2 monitors hooked up to my Kubuntu desktop - running off the onboard HD3200 (AMD 780G chipset), with fglrx. Works kinda smooth, but I turned off the desktop effects for better performance (Video frame-rate wasn't that high with the desktop effects turned on).
